LEGENDARY sportsman and television commentator Peter Allis will visit Lowestoft in September to provide a unique insight into the world of golf in a special evening at the town's Marina Theatre.

Peter made his broadcasting debut way back in 1961, as part of the BBC team covering the Open Championship at Birkdale which was won by Arnold Palmer. His retirement from international golf at the relatively early age of 38 led to a full-time career “on the other side of the ropes.”

By 1978 he was the BBC's chief golf commentator. Peter once claimed he's a golf commentator only because he's “there as an old player, a lover of the game and a good weaver of stories.” Modesty would prevent him saying that Golf Digest described him as “the greatest golf commentator ever” - but to many that's what he is.

Peter is recognised around the world for his television commentaries for ABC in the United States and the BBC in Europe, as well as working for the Australian and Canadian Broadcasting Corporations. He is in constant demand for speaking and presentation engagements, he is noted for his depth of knowledge of the game of golf, his wit and off-the-cuff humour.

In his inimitable, relaxed, and anecdotal style Peter provides wise and helpful advice for those already playing to enable them to get more enjoyment from their game, and even improve. He also describes how accessible the game is for those who have not yet played golf and gives practical directions as to how they should begin.

Peter will be at the Marina Theatre on Sunday, September 12 and to book seats please call the Marina Theatre on 01502 533200.
